Very fun and unique set up of a rotating dining area. The menu had a great selection and not too large to be overwhelming. Waitress was nice and attentive. Would recommend if looking for upscale dining in Duluth.

Whenever we make the trip up from Minneapolis we reserve a table using OpenTable with JJ Astors. Usually come to the bar first then have dinner and end with another drink at the bar.

Located atop of the Radisson Hotel and revolving 360 degrees in about an hour the views are great. The food however was average and overpriced. The Service was good and I would probably recommend it for the experience.
